The Jewels of Life
by Rebecca Mansfield
Once upon a time, a long while ago…
“Actually it was only about a week ago!”
There were three young girls…
“You mean three little thieves!”
Who, whilst bird watching for a school project, stumbled upon three precious jewels…
“They didn’t stumble across anything they stole them!”
WHO IS TELLING THIS BLOODY STORY?
“Sorry, I’ll be quiet.”
Thank you. Now these jewels were very special and belonged to a beautiful princess…
“See told you they were stolen.”
THEY were stolen by a member of her father’s court and lost in the human world. Unfortunately these rare gems were the key to the princess’s very existence…
“No shit, Sherlock!”
BE QUIET! So the king sent his son to retrieve the stones before it was too late. However his son was a lazy oaf who hated doing any kind of work.
“HEY, what exactly are you trying to imply? I just don’t see the great urgency. I mean she’s had a pretty good run and it’s not like she’s going to be queen with me here.”
She’s eighteen and what makes you think you’re going to be king. Your father could choose your lovely sister.
“The son always gets priority over the throne so hah!”
Oh for the last time, SHUT UP! So while this idiot was sitting on his arse the three girls each took one jewel and went off on their holidays - Sara to Rome, Kate to New York and Isabel to Sydney…
“You’ve got to be kidding! Bullocks!”
